TRIPS AND RATES
SMALL MOUTH BASS trips generally run
from  April - October depending on the
water warming and cooling with the
seasons. Spinning rods 6'-7' with NEW good
quality 10 - 12 lb. mono line or 7' bait
casters spooled with NEW good quality 12 -
14 lb. line. Please no braids or Spider wire.
Fly rods should be 7 or 8 Wt with floating
line. Being on the river constantly gives us
the insight on how to target the fish in
changing patterns.
All of our trips are Catch & Release only. We will always provide you with photos from
your trip and take measurements of fish if you wish to get a fiberglass reproduction of
your trophy. Artificial lures/flies are provided depending on the type of trip you choose
and we do not use live bait. While you are welcome to bring your own tackle which we
will check for you, we are happy to provide appropriate spinning or bait casting rods for
the species we are targeting. Fly
equipment is Redington. All lunch, snacks, drinks, tackle
and shuttle are provided on our full day trips. You should bring a good pair of polarized
sunglasses, hat and rain gear. We encourage you to advise us of any medical or dietery
needs we need to be aware of for your trip. Please note we are fishing out of rafts so be
prepared for wet feet in cold weather, hip boots or chest waders are a good choice
Spring and Fall. For your Virginia fishing license call 1-866-721-6911. 8am-5pm (M-F) or

MUSKIE fishing is a demanding
pursuit. This is hard core,
heavy equipment stand up
fishing. If you haven't fished
for these behemoths a 1/2 day
trip may be a good choice to
determine if you have what it
takes to land one of these
giants! 7 - 8' heavy muskie
rods, 100 lb. Warrior Braid
line, 125 lb. leaders and 2 - 10
oz. lures. We target muskie
year round with April being the
slow month due to the spawn.
We welcome those of you who
would like to try muskie on the
fly rod, 12 -14 Wt. Fly rods in
the lesser weight class result in
these giant fish dying within
24 hours due to lactic acid
build up during the fight.
WALLEYE are an indigenous
specie to the Upper New River
and are actually one of the
largest growing strains of
walleye to be found anywhere.
Our largest to date on a trip is 15
lbs! While we catch walleye on
our small mouth trips we target
walleye during their early Spring
spawn Feb. & March. Spinning
equipment used for smallies
works well for the walleye.

STRIPED & HYBRID BASS are
caught on our trips on the New
River as a bonus fish at certain
times of the year.
The Upper New River is truly a World Class fishery offering a diverse array of fish. This
diversity makes for a very exciting trip when you don't know what will be hitting your lure.
Whether it be the small mouth, muskie, walleye, striped or hybrid bass, spotted bass or even
the occasional channel or flathead catfish the battle will be on!
The New River is the second oldest river in the world, some estimate it at 350 million years
old. With very little development on the river most of the float is a peaceful and scenic
venture. Bald and Gold Eagles, deer, turkey, muskrat, mink, turtles, geese, ducks, blue and
green heron and the occasional bear or coyote will be your guests entertaining you on your
float. Class 1 and the occasional class 2 rapids make for a very relaxing fishing trip.

Fishing the New River since 1974 has given me a great insight into the year round patterns
of the fisheries, where to get on them and how to get on them. We invite you to come share
in this incredible habitat.
Other seasonal trips available for
flathead and channel cats.
Fly-fishing for carp (sight fishing).
